Default Fog moving in over Long Beach (taken from deck of Queen Mary)

Took this from the deck of the Queen Mary. 1 minutes prior to this shot it was completely clear and actually saw the fog moving in. Now that I think about it, I should have just recorded in HD.

Thanks. Are you referring to the water line? That part will not be straight because Im shooting down the shore at an angle.

Si, but i see what you're saying now, i think (which may not be a good thought) that it would have been better at a narrower angle or straight on, with it at the angle it is you cant tell if its angled or if its a weird crop. Thats just me.

But once again, it is a shot that is composed great, and it sent chills down my back.

Good job man,
Jeff

Yes it would look better if I had shot straight instead of an angle but there were limitations. There were obstacles to the right that prevented me from panning that way. I might be able to do some perspective work on it to make the waterline straight without screwing it up to bad. Also the fog got thicker and thicker to the right and blacked out the lights.
